Free Sale Party

Premise: Invite a bunch of people over, have them clean out their closets, and bring their junk with them.

Twist: Everyone gets to paw through the combined loot & take home as much as they want.

Conclusion: If there has ever been a party filled with fun & prizes, this was it!

We ended up giving prizes in 4 categories. Judge's Pick went to Bekah for her leg warmers. Most Useful was awarded to Shannon for her towel rack. Jami took home the prize for the Oldest Item, with a book from the 60's. And the most disgusting prize went to Julia for her dog's well loved chewed up stuffed animals-- The Item No One Would Touch.

The food was delectable as well- from a Tomato Leek Tart to Lemon Cake to a Baked Artichoke Spinach dip, there was plenty to munch on. Jess made fun of me for how much I made, but by the end of the party there wasn't much left.

We were pooped when it was all said and done, so we plopped on the beanbag chairs Jess tried to unsuccessfully get rid of. It was a smashing success!
